One of Europe's most acclaimed landscape architects, Paolo Brgi is known for creating minimalist landscape interventions that powerfully reveal the essence of a place. Brgi looks beyond a site's physical boundaries and takes into account its cultural and topographical history. The latest addition to our successful Source Books in Landscape Architecture series, Paolo Brgi Landscape Architect features three of his projects in Switzerland:the Cardada Mountain revitalization in Locarno; the harbor square in Kreuzlingen; and the Terrace on the Forest in Ticino.

Paolo Brgi Landscape Architect presents enlightening discussions between landscape historian Raffaella Fabiani Giannetto and Paolo Brgi. A foreword by Sonja Dmpelmann and an essay by renowned landscape architect and philosopher John Dixon Hunt round out this invaluable volume.
